smile Little Devil's Circus coming soon... contact pitman for further details or keep an eye on this thread



smile on sunny evenings/days, Roath Park (Rec. or flower garden) you may well find a NOn spinning... it might also not be a NOn, or even a HoP person at all, but if you see someone there spinning, you may as well say hello...



at other unspecified times, there may be other meets, check the most recent posts in this thread for specific details...

Cardiff Games, Duke St Arcade: although not exclusively a juggling shop, they stock some poi, juggling balls and rings, plus occasional other sorts of toys... oh and the guy who owns it does poi too!

Posted:well im kinda limited to swansea. (poor student, cant afford much travelling). but i'll be around if theres one close by. just found out a mate has started to learn too, so might have someone to practise with.



or, thread the needle might drive me insane and cause me to burn my poi in a moment of mega frustration.

Posted:i think im getting it very very slowly. like, i can do a couple of repetitions before smacking myself in the crotch.

im only just starting really, butterfly, 3 beat weave (i think, too difficult to count!), and almost TTN is all i can do so far.

Posted:yea i'm coming on sunday the 2nd, i got the reverse ttn down. i've been working on hand wraps and btb weave mostly. i can stop/stall my right poi while spinning my left for transitions but i'm working on stopping my left poi while spinning my right. i've started trying to learn every new move forward and reverse and left and right. after watching nicks video 'the scales of poi' i have been working alot on my plane manipulation. that dvd really helps me with the fundementals and opened up loads of new ways to practice.



u coming?
